In this session we take a look at a great 4 parted 6/8 march called Rab's Wedding. Ideal for the beginning/mid-stage solo competition, this tune is also very popular among bands needing 6/8 sets of tunes. As usual we approach the tune with rhythmic framework, grounding of technique, and just a bit of pulse to keep the 6/8 groove! Enjoy!
In this second session we recap a few fundamentals from last week and move on to some meatier tunes. Sound of Sleat and the Sheepwife are covered in whole or part in this session. Next week - round reels!
In this session we take a look at breaking down the technique of a tune within its own context. We then make "on the fly" exercises to help that technical transition. Today we start with a melodic 2/4 competition march - South Hall. Enjoy!
